My engine iis making a weird noise: is coming from the center of the engine, its making like a screching sound.
i alredy tried checked the pcv valve and the puleys, but thats no it, but when I took off the engine oil cap, the noise stopped, and when I put it back on its still making the noise. I dont know if it has something to do with air vaccumming from someplace or something else is wrong.

somebody who will help me, I will apreciated a lot:)

With out hearing the noise myself, I can only conclude that you have some type of a vacuum leak, possibly in the lower intake manifold. Does the noise change as you rev the egine a bit? Is the check engine light on all? Have you noticed a change in fuel mileage?

I agree with you; its some sort of vacuum leak, but no idea where to start :S when you rev the engine the noise does change, it doesnt sound much, also the check engine light is on and the mileage did change, it whent from like 15mpg to 12 1/2
